Fraud Section Enforcement Related to the CARES Act

Mar. 26, 2021 DOJ Press Release

The Fraud Section leads investigations and prosecutions of fraud, false statements, and money laundering related to the CARES Act passed by Congress in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working alongside law enforcement partners and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, the Fraud Section has charged over a hundred defendants with fraud connected to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL). These efforts have helped to protect the integrity of Small Business Administration programs and deter wrongdoing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
